                          Section 3 - Hazards Identification

      EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Flammable. Causes severe burns.
Potential Health Effects
Eye:
           Causes severe eye irritation. Contact with liquid or vapor causes
           severe burns and possible irreversible eye damage.
Skin:
           Causes skin burns. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin.
           Contact with the skin may cause blackening and hyperkeratosis of the
           skin of the hands.
Ingestion:
           May cause severe and permanent damage to the digestive tract. Causes
           severe pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and shock. May cause
           polyuria, oliguria (excretion of a diminished amount of urine in
           relation to the fluid intake) and anuria (complete suppression of
           urination). Rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract.
Inhalation:
           Effects may be delayed. Causes chemical burns to the respiratory
             tract. Exposure may lead to bronchitis, pharyngitis, and dental
             erosion. May be absorbed through the lungs.
Chronic:
             Chronic exposure to acetic acid may cause erosion of dental enamel,
             bronchitis, eye irritation, darkening of the skin, and chronic
             inflammation of the respiratory tract. Acetic acid can cause
             occupational asthma. One case of a delayed asthmatic response to
             glacial acetic acid has been reported in a person with bronchial
             asthma. Skin sensitization to acetic acid is rare, but has occurred.

                              Section 4 - First Aid Measures

Eyes:
             In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for
             at least 15 minutes. Get medical aid immediately.
Skin:
             In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for
             at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
             Get medical aid immediately. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion:
          If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Get medical aid immediately.
          If victim is fully conscious, give a cupful of water. Never give
          anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Inhalation:
          If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial
          respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician:
          Persons with pre-existing skin disorders or impaired respiratory or
          pulmonary function may be at increased risk to the effects of this
          substance. Treat symptomatically and supportively.

                            Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures

General Information:
          As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in
          pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full
          protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases
          may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use water
          spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Reacts with most metals
          to form highly flammable hydrogen gas which can form explosive
          mixtures with air. Flammable liquid and vapor. Vapors are heavier
          than air and may travel to a source of ignition and flash back.
          Vapors can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined
          areas.
Extinguishing Media:
          Use water spray, dry chemical, "alcohol resistant" foam, or carbon
          dioxide.
                        Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

General Information:
          Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks:
          Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth),
          then place in suitable container. Wash area with soap and water.
          Remove all sources of ignition. Use a spark-proof tool. Provide
          ventilation. Use water spray to cool and disperse vapors, protect
          personnel, and dilute spills to form nonflammable mixtures. Control
          runoff and isolate discharged material for proper disposal. Spill may
          be carefully neutralized with soda ash (sodium carbonate).

                           Section 7 - Handling and Storage

Handling:
            Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and
            wash before reuse. Ground and bond containers when transferring
            material. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Empty
            containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be
            dangerous. Discard contaminated shoes. Do not pressurize, cut, weld,
            braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat,
            sparks or open flames. Use only with adequate ventilation. Keep away
            from heat, sparks and flame. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Use
            corrosion-resistant transfer equipment when dispensing.
Storage:
            Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep from contact with
            oxidizing materials. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away
            from incompatible substances. Do not store near alkaline substances.
            Acetic acid should be kept above its freezing point of 62‹F(17‹C) to
            allow it to be handled as a liquid. It will contract slightly on
            freezing. Freezing and thawing does not affect product quality.

                   Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection

Engineering Controls:
          Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped
          with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate general or
          local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the
          permissible exposure limits. Use a corrosion-resistant ventilation
          system.
